So when we say “Show me the money…” just how much cash are we talking about. First-round selections for the NBA draft are guaranteed two years on their contract - down from three in 2006. If, for example, Brandan Wright were selected in the lottery, the first 14 picks, his contract would be worth no less than $1,376,900 in his first year.

If Wright is selected with the third overall draft pick, which is where many in addition to UNC Coach Roy Williams feel he is likely to be taken, he would make $3,121,500 in his first year and $3,355,600 in his second.

Who doesn’t walk for $6.4 million guaranteed?
